Why We Love It

Get a fantastic display of silver needles and purple cones from Abies Koreana 'Silberlocke'.

This slow-growing evergreen conifer reaches approximately two metres tall and has an irregular conical shape.

How to Plant

A moist and well-drained soil that is slightly on the acidic side will encourage your 'Korean Fir' to grow tall. A hardy plant, your Abies koreana will look after itself, and because it grows slowly and steadily over around 50 years, it doesn’t need much pruning either.

Into the Ground

You’ll need a pot and trowel, together with acidic compost and some water to pot your 'Korean Fir'. As it grows, you’ll need to repot it with larger pots each time.

  1. Fill your pot with plenty of compost.
  2. Dig a hole twice the size of the rootball.
  3. Place your plant inside the hole and coat it with more compost.
  4. Give your plant a water and leave it somewhere with plenty of sunshine and a little shelter.

Into a Pot

Choose a spot with good sunlight when planting your Korean Fir. A little shelter is helpful too, as long as there’s space for it to sprout upwards. Take your spade, watering can and acidic compost to get planting.

  1. Dig a hole twice the size of the plant’s rootball.
  2. Add a spread of compost into the planting hole.
  3. Remove your Korean Fir from its pot and carefully place it inside the hole.
  4. Add more compost and firm up.
  5. Water it in generously, so lots of moisture reaches the roots.
